To the editor:
Now that the campaign to promote the income tax check-off for service to homeless people is over, I want to take this opportunity to thank Lois Collins for all her help. Her coverage of the check-off from the beginning at the press conference with the governor all the way through has been excellent. I particularly appreciate highlighting the role of students in the project.I should point out that her continuing interest in the problems of homelessness and your coverage of this problem over a period of time has done much to increase public awareness of the causes of homelessness and the problems the community agencies face in attempting to find solutions.
Please accept the appreciation of the State Homeless Coordinating Committee and my personal thanks for the cooperation and responsiveness in addressing this difficult issue.
